The latest star shooting of the #MeToo movement, Morgan Freeman, has issued an apology to “anyone who felt uncomfortable or disrespected”; however, he has explained that he was just after advice on underwear.

The accusations involve the Hollywood star asking young women who were working on a production with him whether they were wearing underwear and attempting to lift up their skirts.

Freeman’s statement read: “Anyone who knows me or has worked with me knows I am not someone who would intentionally offend or knowingly make anyone feel uneasy.”

The Oscar-winning actor then went on to say:

“I was genuinely just curious. I’ve often struggled with the choice of underpants myself. Boxers, briefs or even a cheeky G-string never seem to sit right and I often feel an unpleasant chafing.

“Sometimes if I’m working long hours onset, I just free-ball to avoid any discomfort but would very much prefer to properly cover up.

“When I see a young intern walking past confidently and by all appearances comfortably, I want to know what brand of underwear they’re wearing, so that I too might trial that same brand.

“Making women feel uncomfortable was never my intent.

“By the way, is your bra properly fitted?”
